The TB Centre at the Union World Conference on Lung Health | October 2018

Union conference 2018

The Union World Conference on Lung Health is the world’s largest gathering of clinicians and public health workers, health programme managers, policymakers, researchers and advocates working to end the suffering caused by lung disease, with a focus specifically on the challenges faced by low-and lower-middle income populations. Of the 10 million people who die each year from lung diseases, some 80 percent live in these resource-limited settings. Organising international conferences on TB and related subjects has been a core activity of The Union since its founding in 1920.

Here at the TB Centre, we’re very excited to have a substantial presence at the upcoming conference, between 23nd-27th October 2018. Please see the table below for a full listing of speakers/events (also available as a downloadable PDF).

Coupled with the Centre presence, we’re hosting an alumni drinks at “Comeonin” on Antonie Duyckstraat 141, Den Haag (; Thursday 25 October 17:30-20:30. A short walk from the conference centre.

The alumni event is free but registration is required so we have some idea of numbers – please join us here!
